Pathways Animal Clinic is a modern, well equipped veterinary hospital and laboratory , designed to provide a broad range of medical, dental, surgical and alternative services for your special companions.
Veterinary medicine is a private enterprise that involves considerable investment in facilities, equipment, training, supplies and staff. We have no public funding and are completely dependent upon the continuing support and goodwill of our clients.
Our mission is to provide a very high standard of veterinary health care. Such high quality care may at times be complex, challenging and costly. We would be pleased to discuss fees with you and provide estimates for recommended services at any time.
These are the people that bring love, compassion, talent and dedication to work with them each and every day!

My family and I recently moved to Sylvan Lake after spending a few years in both northern and southern Alberta. After graduating high school in 2006 I began working as a helper in a Veterinary clinic for two years. My passion for animals and health care was realized- and I enrolled in the Animal Health Technician program in Fairview, Alberta in 2008- graduating in 2010. Since that time I have been working as a Registered Animal Health Technician, while starting a family. I have a one and four year old that keep me very busy! In my spare time I enjoy having fun with my children and fiancé, camping and baking. We are all enjoying the wonderful community of Sylvan Lake!
Christina has lived in Sylvan Lake with her husband and son since 2014.
Oliver is the official boss and welcoming committee since our opening in 2008.
